^-^ ...a blending 

of the practical 
with the academic. 

For some college students, leaving the classroom and 
entering the world of work can be somewhat of a shock. 
Although most college graduates have more than 17 years of 
academic preparation, many have had little exposure to actual' 
job situations. 

But that's not a problem for those Stout students who 
participate in the University's Field Experience program. Now 
in its eighth year, the program allows students to earn 
academic credit while working in actual job situations. Unlike 
the "internships" that many universities require of senior 
students, Stout's Field Experience provides a greater variety of 
job situations and is open to underclassmen. 

Jack Ganzemiller, director of the program, explains that 
students are given credit for the learning experience they 
receive on the job, as it relates to their studies at Stout. But 
the simple fact that students are working is not the reason 
academic credit is awarded, he pointed out. "The reason we 
are awarding academic credit is because of learning obtained 
from the experience relating to the student's major, minor or 
concentration," Ganzemiller noted. Since Field Experience is 
treated as a college course, students must obtain approval from 
the chairman of the department sponsoring the credit. 

More than 2,000 students have now received credit for work 
in hundreds of different jobs. Wages may range from non- 
salaried volunteer work to as much as $10 an hour, according 
to Ganzemiller. 

He said that the program is an attempt to "blend the 
realities of the real world into the theories students learn in 
class and to show that both have their attributes." 

Employment might be as close as Menomonie, or as far 
away as Caracas, Venezuela, where one Hotel and Restaurant 
Management major served for a summer as a sales trainee. 
Business Administration majors have listed Field Experience 
jobs such as salesman, warehouse group leader, assistant 
foreman, and real estate broker. Early Childhood Education 
majors have held jobs as teacher's aid, playground leader and 
waterfront director. Fashion Merchandising and Clothing, 
Textiles and Design majors have worked in a variety of sales 
positions. Jobs for Home Economics Education majors range 
from power machine operator to baker's helper. Industrial 
Education and Industrial Technology majors work as car- 
penters, draftsmen, welders, mechanics, design technicians, 
production engineers and material handlers. 

"Every year the list expands in scope," said Ganzemiller. 
"The reason we got into this is that no matter how much 
laboratory space you have or how many relevant faculty 
members there are, you can't simulate the environment of the 
free enterprise system or the type of relationship you have 
with people when you are working in industry," he noted. 

He pointed out that the typical high school and college 
student grows up primarily within a small group of teachers, 
parents and peers of similar background. But when students 
enter the business world, they often find that they are dealing 
with people from very diverse backgrounds."A lot of students 
are perplexed with how to deal with these situations," he 

To help them, students submit weekly reports on their 
activities in which they outline both problems and accomplish- 
ments. Other assistance is also available to students from 
faculty coordinators to which they are assigned. Generally, 
students receive two credits for each semester or summer of 
off-campus work. One credit is awarded for work in the field 
and ithe second for a written report which is required from 
each student. The report includes duties, responsibilities, 
problems and solutions within the job. It must also show how 
the Field Experience relates to specific courses on campus and 
to the student's own vocational objectives. 

After returning to campus, each student participates in an 
evening seminar with five or six other students who have also 
obtained similar or related Field Experience. 

Students are also expected to set weekly objectives and to 
describe specific learning achievements they attain. 

In many instances, the Field Experience allows the students 
to learn more about specific careers, before making final 
decisions on their majors. "Many students really don't know 
what careers they want," Ganzemiller said. "We want to get 
them into the working environment early enough to help them 
make these kinds of decisions." 

Some students may decide to enter the type of industry in 
which they receive their Field Experience. Others may end up 
teaching the subjects they experience as high school, voca- 
tional school and junior college instructors. 

Reaction to the idea has been good and students have 
expressed a variety of benefits they can relate to their 

Page 3 

education. "I can't see how a person in my major can go out 
and teach without working in industry," one Industrial 
Education major wrote in his evaluation sheet. "It (the 
program) helped me to gain a new outlook on my field and of 
people in general." 

"My experience was fantastic,"' wrote a Home Economics 
Education major. "I would like to share it with more people. I 
think it could get them motivated to do more and see the 
many possibilities for education majors." 

A Hotel and Restaurant Management major said, "I had no 
experience in hotel and restaurant management until I worked 
in the field this past summer. My classes are more meaningful 
now. I could have earned more money in my old job, but with 
Field Experience I gained 100 percent more." 

A Fashion Merchandising major had a similar reaction. "I 
took my Field Experience early in my college career and now I 
can see the classes in the light of experience," she said. 

Some students said that the program also provided valuable 
experience for the employer and others stressed the impor- 
tance of students relating summer jobs to their academic 
fields. A few indicated they changed their - majors after finding 
out what it was like to work in a chosen field. 

While providing the students exposure to the world of work, 
Field Experience has an even more important effect on its 
participants; that is, a change in attitude. Ganzemiller said that 
most Field Experience students develop a more realistic 
attitude toward work and, in many cases, these students show 
a distinct improvement in the kind of work they do when they 
return to the classroom. 

And there is another benefit many students never even 
anticipate. Field Experience often opens the door for per- 
manent employment. "After graduation, students often go 
back to the company in which they obtained their . Field 
Experience," Ganzemiller said.

The name Clyde Bowman is 
familiar to most Stout alumni. 
Some remember him as the 
much-liked Dean of Industrial 
Education or the Acting Pres- 
ident. Others know him as the 
man for whom Bowman Hall— 
the tower building— was named. 
In any case, Bowman occupies 
an important part of the Stout 
history. And . so it was with 
befitting enthusiasm that 
Bowman was received last spring 
when he returned to campus 
after more than 20 years retire- 

Still interested in education 
and with Stout, he journeyed 
from his Laguna Hills, Calif., 
home to receive the University's 
Distinguished Alumni Award 
and to chat with Chancellor 
Robert S. Swanson on changes 


.• ■ 



and developments that have 
taken place in the institution 
since he left in 1953. 

Bowman received his diploma 
from Stout in 1 909 , followed by 
additional degrees from Colum- 
bia University and University of 
Wisconsin-Madison. He joined 
the Stout staff in 1919 as the 
first Dean of Industrial Educa- 
tion. When Lorenzo Dow 
Harvey, the University's first 
President passed away in 1922, 
Bowman was appointed Acting 
President. He served in that 
capacity for nearly a year, 

before Burton E. Nelson was 
appointed a successor to Harvey. 

Bowman was always a favorite 
of the Stout faculty and many 
staff members maintain contact 
with him today. "Bowman- 
ology," a system of charts and 
graphs he used to organize facts, 
continues to be part of the Stout 

His agenda last spring here at 
Stout included a special recep- 
tion in the Student Union and a 
picture taking session during 
which we asked him to pose 
next to the tower building. 

Eight Faculty Members Retire 

Page 5 

The retirement of eight faculty members at Stout has been 
announced by Chancellor Robert S. Swanson. They include 
Ralph G. Iverson, assistant chancellor for Student Services, 
who will retire Jan. 1 ; and John A. Jarvis, professor of 
industrial teacher education and former vice-president for 
Academic Affairs, who retired July 1 . Other staff members 
retiring last summer included Miss Ella Jane Meiller, admin- 
istrator of the Department of Food and Nutrition; Gustave 
Wall, professor of education and psychology; Mrs. Lorna 
Lengfeld, professor of speech; Miss Karen Boe, assistant 
professor of English; Henry Redkey, professor of vocational 
rehabilitation; and Mrs. Florence Blank, assistant professor of 
early childhood education.

Under Iverson's leadership, the Division of Student Services 
was established at Stout. The unit includes offices such as 
admission, financial aids, records, counseling, placement, food 
service and student living areas. In announcing Iverson's 
retirement, Swanson called him a "key figure on the Stout 
campus," noting the variety and depth of the many services 
Iverson created for students on campus. "Although he has had 
a considerable part in the growth of the University, he never 
lost sight of an even more important development— the growth 
of the student," Swanson said. "His background and training 
and natural feel for people has caused him to maintain a key 
interest in student welfare." 

Iverson holds degrees form Augustana College, Sioux Falls, 
S.D.; the University of Minnesota; and the University of 
California. He has served in a variety of positions in education 
including principal of Rutland, S.D., High School; superintend- 
ent of schools at Rutland, superintendent of schools, Jasper, 
Minn.; assistant principal of University High School, University 
of Minnesota; and professor and head of the Education 
Department at Luther College, Decorah, la. He served briefly 
as assistant professor of education and psychology at Stout in 
1946, joining the staff again in 1951. 

Under Iverson's leadership, Stout's Master's degree program 
in guidance was established. "Dr. Iverson saw the need and 
potential for a considerable increase in guidance counselors at 
the elementary, secondary and technical institute levels," 

Swanson said, adding the major Iverson developed is now one 
of the largest and most respected in the region. 

Iverson was also responsible for the development and 
operation of Stout's annual Guidance Conference, which is 
now considered one of the largest meetings of its kind in the 
country. The Conference has continued uninterrupted for 21 
years and now draws several thousand persons each year from 
throughout the Midwest. 

While on the Stout staff, he held a variety of administrative 
posts including director of Student Personnel Services, dean of 
Student Services, and vice-president of Student Services. From' 
December 1971, until September 1972, Iverson headed the 
institution as acting chancellor. "His role in administering the 
University left no doubt about his outstanding leadership 
capabilities, and he made the position of Chancellor an easy 
one to assume," Swanson said. "His steady mature approach, 
always thinking of how decisions will affect people, has aided 
Stout in keeping on the right track in furthering the goals for 
education and the community." Swanson said that he con- 
sidered it a distinct honor to have worked with Iverson over 
the years, first as a student in his classes, then as a fellow 
faculty member and administrator. Calling Iverson "truly a 
Stout man," Swanson said,'"His presence will be truly missed 
on this campus, but the many ideas he has contributed will 
continue to develop and grow." 

Iverson has been active in numerous professional organiza- 
tions. He has served as chairman of the Wisconsin Education 
Association's Council on Education, a delegate to the Amer- 
ican Personnel Guidance Association Assembly, treasurer of 
the Wisconsin Personnel and Guidance Association and a 
member of the Governor's Committee on Children and Youth. 
A banquet in honor of Iverson will be held Friday, Nov. 30, 
and all alumni are invited to attend. The banquet will take 
place at 7 p.m., in the. Stout Commons, preceded by a 6:30 
reception in the Glass Lounge.. Reservations, at $6.50 per 
plate, can be made by contacting Sam Wood, dean of students. 
Checks should be made payable to the "Iverson Committee." 
Jarvis had been a faculty member at Stout for 27 years and 
headed the University's academic division during much of the 
dramatic growth of the institution. A nationally acclaimed 
professor of industrial education, he also served as acting 
president of Stout in the winter of 1971 . He had been teaching 
industrial arts on campus since stepping down as vice-president 
for Academic Affairs in 1971 . 

In announcing his retirement, Swanson said Jarvis will be 
"long remembered for his great contributions to Stout." 
Swanson said that when Jarvis came to Stout as a faculty 
member in 1946, he was very quickly recognized by both 
students and faculty as an unusual individual. '-'Many were 
predicting that he would be in a leadership role," Swanson 

Jarvis was appointed dean of industrial education in 1953. 
He was named the chief academic officer when he was 
appointed dean of instruction in 1964, a position which later 
became vice-president of Academic Affairs. 

Swanson cited Jarvis' contribution to the "professional 
advancement of many persons now on the faculty and 
administration at Stout, as well as those in public schools and 
industry throughout the United States." 

Jarvis holds degrees from University of Wisconsin— Madison, 
Stout, Wayne University and the University of Minnesota. He 
served three and one-half years in the U.S. Navy during World 
War II and was the commanding officer for an anti-aircraft 
training center. 

His teaching experience has included Flint, Mich., Junior

The growth of technology in the 20th Century has been paralleled by a concern 
that the humanistic aspect of our society not be lost to the machine. Stout has shown 
leadership in addressing itself to that concern with an emphasis on both the practical 
aspect of technology and the humanistic aspect of art. The relationship to these two 
important parts of education is expressed in this photo essay by John Williams, 
coordinator of photography, here at Stout.
